Bring your family and friends to Nordic Rocks, ESNSA’s inaugural country dance fundraiser! You will support the Mammoth JuniorNordic Team while seeing your friends, listening to fun music, eating good food, and/or stepping out and learning beginning country dances.  All ages will enjoy this event and you DON’T need a dance partner or dance experience. The dances to be taught are based on 17th century French and English folk dances that have evolved into the American contra dance, barn dance, and square dance.  The live music performed by local musicians will be down home, good feeling, acoustic music flavored by old timey, bluegrass, Celtic tunes.  To find out more about our country dance style, you can check the links below.

This is the 9th year that Reel Rock has produced a film. This years’ film, “Valley Uprising”, is “a documentary about the history of Yosemite rock climbing from Sender Films. It looks to be the most comprehensive (and awesome!) rock climbing documentary to date.”  (Climbing magazine) From the Youtube description:

“Narrated by Peter Sarsgaard, the film features digitally-animated archival photography, spectacular climbing footage and interviews with Yosemite greats—from pioneers like Yvon Chouinard, Royal Robbins, Lynn Hill and John Long to cutting edge modern athletes like Dean Potter and Alex Honnold. Valley Uprising tells the story of the bold men and women who broke the convention and redefined the limits of human possibility in America’s legendary national park.”

For any business or individual interested and able to sponsor this event or donate an item for their raffle, please contact Jennifer at [email protected] or 760-914-2226.
